Yes - the INET mode for catalogs along with a few interchange.cfg entries 
will allow you to do this.

Sure. :-)

The easiest/best way is to use an external dbms, such as MySQL, and 
configure all catalogs to connect to the same db.userdb. I suppose if you 
were using the GDBM you could just symlink each additional catalog's 
products directory back to the 'original' one, as long as ownerships and 
permissions allowed it. But this latter approach is not recommended.
